    Hmm. Maybe some integration between Psychometry and Clairvoyance, to enable someone to "travel" to the past for observational purposes?



    The inherent point was for quick tasks, or even combat. A more permanent servitor upgrade might let you keep one as a Retainer/Familiar. I'm also thinking about one where you invest a Willpower Dot (spent, or kept in reserve) to give the animate skin volition as a new being - you'd then enhance it by spending your XP.



    So it is. I remembered the 3 Willpower to 1 Essence, but forgot the previous li...

    Atlantis, Ltd.
    There are some who have been given a second chance. Maybe they were saved from being a cripple. Maybe it was from being merely mediocre. Regardless, they were deemed a suitable candidate and went through The Procedure. Now they've had their bodies enhanced with technological enhancements that are nearly beyond belief - provided they can prevent straining their abilities too much, or drawing undesired attention. At least, that's what the company tells them. It far easier to accept than "channeling magical symbols to alter reality".

    Well, Proximi have more flexibility than Shaped would, being able to configure factors and Reach, and having access to more distinct spells. These gain in depth (being able to reach Adept and Master level effects) what they lack in breadth (they have, at most, 10 distinct effects).

    These aren't intended as a replace of anything. I just was working through thought experiments, and these are nice and simple, mechanically. Few changes compared to an already existing system. Light-weight (mechanically, at least).

    Still, I'd hope some other Mage games might find a use for...

    Some Skin-Thief ones. I'll edit them out to be actual write-up when I have more time, later.
    • Stolen Memories - can use some of the skin’s memories and skills. (Skills for physical skins, Influence toward relevant rolls for ephemeral skins)
    • Animate Skin - can give the skin independent life/animation, albeit at zombie/automaton-like intelligence.
    • Harvest Essence - once per day (per skin), you can gather essence in the same way the ephemeral would.
    • Life-Thief - by spending a Willpower Dot, you can make a permanent skin your (new) true form.

  • Some Minor options I made, if people are curious:
    • Soul-Shaped (Sleepwalkers with Legacy abilities)
    • People with Affinities
    • Hedge Sorcerers (Just Changeling Contracts, basically)
    • One take on a 2E Unihar (Wolf-bloods with 2 Tells, inherent access to Renown, and Shadow and Wolf Gifts... and the ability to acquire the Renown/Gifts of their parents, should they kill them)

    started a topic The Soul-Shaped

    The Soul-Shaped

    So, this is based on a Mystery I though up (and may have posted elsewhere). Basically these are Sleepwalkers (and even Sleepers, if you want) who have essentially had their souls shaped like a Legacy does.

    Mechanically, they are part of a Legacy (either an existing one, or a custom one just for these).
    1. Pick a thematic (for the Legacy) Skill for the Primary and another Skill for the Secondary Arcana associated with the Legacy. These skills are treated as if they were Arcana rating for the purposes of dice pool, Reach, Attainments, etc.
    2. Treat their Willpower as their Gnosis rating

    For FC-aligned Sleepers, there is Traditional Understanding.

  • At those Sizes, it might be better to model areas of the Ephemeral/Creature as separate areas or sections. Like the entire thing might be Size 230, but the Head or Limb is Size 30 (and you deal with it individually).

  • Hmm. Seems a little bit too Cross-over dependent (even if the G-M is in Core, it is still an optional component). Their existing infrastructure could also simply be just as headless and running on auto-pilot. Local Lemurian Collectives control what they can, others are coasting on stale orders, others have been so-opted by all manner of factions (the G-M being only one potential). Drives home more of the "No one is in charge" theme than having it mostly stolen by a single power.

    Also brings up options for moral ambiguity - the best outcome might actually be helping Lemurians...

  • Inquisitors too. As you never know just what kind of information may be useful, better to just collect as much as you can.

    But depending on the Demon and their personal ties, it is just as easy as any other character. The only real limitation is refueling is harder without a G-M presence....

    Based on the description and effect, this seems more like the Deep Pockets Exploit than the In My Pocket Embed.



    Should this be Near Field? I don't think Demon House has this direct effect normally.



    While this sounds like it is intended for having a more palatial Bolthole-like building, it sounds perfect for practicing infiltration and reconnaissance - slap it on a building is some secluded corner, and scope out the interior without fear of guards or observation. Can it mimic security systems inside the building too?...

    replied to Oneiros questions
    So, what would happen in the following situations:
    • Other Goetia are brought in or created in a person's Oneiros.
    • Someone "modifies" the existing Goetia (pretty sure it is the mental manipulation, as stated above).
    • An Acamoth eats/replaces one of a person's Goetia or their Daemon.
    • Another type of Ephemeral eats/fuses with their Goetia (provided that is possible).
    • A Demon (Unchained variety) uses Ephemeral Cover (if possible) and tries to replace one of the Goetia (likely nothing, since even if they look like the Goetia, they aren't it per se).
